Step 5: Spread Em...

You sometimes (most of the time...) need to spread the pads after putting them in. If you do, DO NOT use a screwdriver, it can gouge the pads.

Instead slide a cone wrench in between the pads and you should be ready to roll.
Ok what do you do when the new pads are way thicker and after spreading they snap back into place meaning that they are full on all the time? <br> <br>Do not try and loosen the top brake screw to relise some of the pressure as all you're brake fluid will come out. <br>Anyone know what too do?
how come my brake pads are round? on every site i've checked; they're rectangular. if i buy rectangular ones would they fit?
What bike?
This one is my Klein Palomino. -Joe
